Re: Outlook 2010 Help Please.

Hi Gene,
I know what you mean about the Thunderbird is not a large file, matter of fact, when Thunderbird started downloading, Brave said Thunderbird was 101 MB, and that isn't a large file. That is why I figured something is wrong, and closed the download, after three attempts. I got a message on my PC today telling me I had a new update for JAWS 2021, so, I started the download of JAWS, and the download was acting just like when I was downloading Thunderbird, meaning the counting down. JAWS didn't even complete the download, and I got the same message as I did when I was downloading Thunderbird, about how this file can harm your PC, and asking me if I am sure I want to continue the download. I'm thinking there might be some setting in Brave I need to change. Do you know what I might look for in Brave as to see why do I get this message, as this is the second time I got the message? Can you please send me a drop box link, and I will try that to see if it will work.
Thank you Thank you!

Janet

I don't know how fast your connection is but the download isn't large, its
about 100MB.

What antivirus and antimalware programs are you using?

I can try uploading the program to my Dropbox and you can see if you can
download it from there.

Gene,
I've been trying to download Thunderbird with the link you gave for at least
35 minutes or more, and I get a message from Brave saying downloading
Thunderbird Portable 32 minutes left, but then one minute later Brave
reports 25 minutes left, then Brave reports 29 minutes left, this doesn't
sound right. I closed the download, and tried it three different times
again, but I still get the same message from Brave about counting the
minutes, and then I get a message saying this program will harm your
computer do I still want to allow this program on my computer, but I can't
seem to find anywhere to answer this question either yes or no. Any ideas?

I would suggest Thunderbird Portable. It does as much as the installed
version and it has advantages. If the program develops a problem, yu don't
have to troubleshoot it. You can have a backup copy and you can delete the
copy you are using and copy the backup to the location where the program is
you usually use.

Another advantage is that if you want to put the program on another
computer, you can copy it there and do no setup.

You can also run it from a thumb drive or other removable media. So if you
are using someone else's computer and you want to use your program, you can
use it in that way.

Here is a direct download link:
https://portableapps.com/downloading/?a=ThunderbirdPortable&n=Mozilla%20Thunderbird,%20Portable%20Edition&s=s&p=&d=pa&f=ThunderbirdPortable_78.4.2_English.paf.exe

You run the exe file and it seems like an installer but it doesn't install
anything. It places the program on your hard drive.

You run the program by opening the folder where it is, finding the exe file,
typing t will probably place you on it the first time, then press enter.
You can also send the exe file to the desktop as a shortcut and make a short
cut key. If you want to know more about that, members will tell you.

As to your NVDA question, I'll either write you a short introduction or I
may have something I wrote in the past.

Hi Gene,
Thank you for this. Do you know of any way I might set up Thunderbird now
on my pc, just so I can try it out, and get used to it before I delete
Outlook, or is this just too far fetch? I guess what I'm asking is can I
have to different email programs on my pc at the same time? If that makes
any sense.

Hi Alan,
Thank you for your response, but I don't think doing a repair would help, as
Outlook 2010 is just so outdated! Outlook is not only outdated, but it is
sure enough flaky! I never did like Outlook for the simple fact it has to
many whistles and bells, in which I can't stand, and I just don't need all
those bells that go along with it. Now, this is just my personal opinion
though. The thought of calling Microsoft, gives me a headache! I will
definitely look in to another email program though. Having said all that, I
do love Outlook for iOS though, and wish I could have that on my pc, and not
only on my phone, but it is what it is! LOLL!

Hi everyone,
For quite some time now, whenever I attempt to forward an email message,
Jaws completely just stops talking, and no matter what keys I might press,
Jaws is completely silent. Several minutes later after I keep pressing some
keys just to see if I can hear something, Jaws starts reading, Microsoft is
not responding if I close the program now or restart the program, I will
lose any unsaved data, then I get the message saying, U.S spelling is not
responding. Does anyone have any suggestions as how to stop this, and just
simply forward an email message?
Using Outlook 2010, Windows 7.
Thank you all in advance.

Gene,

           The former.

           And when it comes to things sent to you as attachments, your smartest move for any you want to have over the long haul is to detach them and save them to your own machine outside the e-mail client entirely.

           I've been using Gmail for years and on a couple of accounts have not been nearly so good about following my own, "Once you touch it, you nuke it if you know you don't want it later," rule.  One one account I've got 10,044 messages, most of which really should have been deleted immediately after first access.  On two others I've got just over 4500 messages on one and just under 2000 messages on another, and that's ridiculous, too, but not quite as ridiculous as the first example.

           Keeping every email message you ever receive is the cyber equivalent of keeping every piece of real mail (including junk mail) you ever receive, and who does that?  We even tend to throw out important stuff, like bills, after we know we've sent payment unless we need records for something like taxes.  Hoarding email makes no more sense than hoarding snail mail.  It's a small portion of what any one of us receive that requires permanent filing, and the capacities given by any email service provider I know have yet to be exceeded either by myself or any residential or small business client I've had over the past almost 2 decades.

POP3 can definitely be set this way, but most default configurations don't. If you were using an e-mail client that actually asked you a preference upon setting up the account then that was an email client that was far more smartly designed than the many I've had the misfortune of dealing with.

When it first became common for people to have multiple devices I spent a lot of time trying to explain to those who set up POP3 on all of them, for the same account, why they were seeing different messages on the different devices and why those received on one were not received on the others. And since POP3 had been pretty much the only early email protocol, a lot of people made huge messes for themselves at that time by simply "copy and pasting" their account settings from device to device without realizing the likely ramifications. The fact that very few these days access email strictly on a single device was the reason that IMAP, Exchange and other server-side access protocols came into existence. And since those work perfectly well even if you are only using a single machine, they make a lot more sense to use anyway, particularly since they allow you to change either e-mail clients or computers or both, at will, without losing a single message. Set up your account again and it's all "automagically" back again - no migration necessary.

JAWS2021.2011.16 Full Release Download Link + What's New

Mike B.
 

Hi All,
 
Below is the direct download link + what's new in this, JAWS2021.2011.16, full release.

32 & 64 Bit Download Link:
 
 

What's New in JAWS 2021 Screen Reading Software
 
JAWS 2021 Features
Picture Smart Improvements
 
Introduced in JAWS and Fusion 2019, Picture Smart allows you to choose a photo and submit it to be analyzed. A description of the image is then displayed
in the Results Viewer. To use Picture Smart, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, followed by P to activate the Picture Smart layer. You can then press A to describe
a photo acquired from the PEARL camera or a flatbed scanner, F to describe a selected image file in Windows Explorer, C to describe the current control,
or B to describe an image on the Windows Clipboard.
 
JAWS and Fusion 2021 continues to expand this feature by offering several improvements including:
 
list of 3 items
• Describing images on web pages: If focused on an image that is part of a web page, such as a photo on Facebook, pressing INSERT+SPACEBAR, P followed
by C now describes the photo.
• Submitting images to multiple services to help improve accuracy: By default, images are submitted to Microsoft for analyzing. However, the Results Viewer
now contains a More Results link which submits the image again to additional services for analyzing and displays an updated description. You can also add
SHIFT to a Picture Smart command to use multiple services. For example, INSERT+SPACEBAR, P followed by SHIFT+F, SHIFT+C, or SHIFT+B.
• Using Picture Smart in multiple languages: If you are using JAWS or Fusion in a language other than English and you attempt to use Picture Smart, JAWS
and Fusion will use machine translation to display descriptions in the particular language. You can also manually choose from 38 languages for displaying
results, configurable using the new Picture Smart Language option in Settings Center.
list end
 
Please note that these changes, especially the machine translation for other languages, is still experimental, so things may not always work as expected.
Results will improve as we continue refining this functionality.
 
For more information on Picture Smart, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, P followed by QUESTION MARK or refer to the Picture Smart topic in the JAWS help.
 
OCR Text Directly into a Word Document
 
The Convenient OCR (Optical Character Recognition) feature has been enhanced to support sending recognized text directly to Word. Convenient OCR enables
you to access images containing text that is part of the image and displays this information in the Results Viewer. This includes onscreen images such
as the graphical setup screen for an application, an inaccessible PDF opened in Adobe Reader, a currently selected image file in Windows Explorer, or a
document acquired by the PEARL camera or a flatbed scanner.
 
If Microsoft Office is installed on your system, you can now:
 
list of 2 items
• Use the new command INSERT+SPACEBAR, O followed by R to perform OCR on a selected image file in File Explorer or the Desktop and place the recognized
text directly into a Word document. You can also press the APPLICATIONS key and choose Convenient OCR to Word with JAWS or Fusion from the context menu.
• Use the new Open in Word link that appears at the bottom of the Results Viewer once the OCR process is complete.
list end
 
For more information about using Convenient OCR, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, O followed by QUESTION MARK or refer to the Convenient OCR topic in the JAWS help.
 

New Voice Assistant to Help with Various JAWS Commands and Features
 
The new Voice Assistant provides a way to interact with JAWS in Windows 10 using speech input. Supported languages include English, Dutch, German, Spanish,
and French. Ask it to help you out with various JAWS features using natural speech. This means that the same action can be performed by more than one similar
phrase instead of a single predefined voice command. For instance, to launch JAWS Settings Center, you could say "Settings Center" or "change settings."
Unlike keyboard shortcuts, which can be hard to remember, natural voice commands are an easier way to interact with the JAWS software. Using voice input
to control JAWS can also benefit users with certain conditions which prevent them from using a keyboard effectively.
 
The JAWS Voice Assistant uses your computer's internal microphone or you can talk to it using an external microphone or headset. To tell the Voice Assistant
to begin listening for a specific command, there are three options:
 
list of 2 items
• Press the key combination, INSERT+ALT+SPACEBAR.
• Speak a specific wake word which alerts the software to begin listening for a voice command, similar to using an Alexa or Google Home device. The wake
word is "Sharky." Speak this word followed by a specific JAWS command, such as, "Sharky, list links."
list end
 
Note: The wake word is not available if you are using a Bluetooth microphone. In this case, you must use the keystroke before speaking the voice command.
 

list of 1 items
• From the JAWS main window, press ALT+U to open the Utilities menu, expand the Voice Assistant submenu, and then select Talk to JAWS.
list end
 
When the Voice Assistant starts listening for a voice command, a short audio indicator plays, and a visual indicator is displayed. After hearing a voice
command, a different audio indicator plays until the command is processed. After processing, the visual indicator is removed, a different, short, audio
indicator plays, and the desired JAWS action is performed.
 
If the Voice Assistant does not hear anything, the message, "Sorry, I didn’t hear anything" is spoken. If the Voice Assistant does not understand or if
the voice command is not supported, the message, "Sorry, I didn’t catch that" is spoken.
 
Note: Since all voice recognition processing is performed over the Internet using Microsoft Services in the cloud, there will be a slight delay depending
on your connection. Be patient and experiment with different commands. This is a new technology being added to our software products and will continue
to change and evolve over time. We welcome your suggestions and feedback.
 
To turn off the Voice Assistant or change other options, such as whether or not JAWS listens for the wake word or to turn off the sounds, open the JAWS
Utilities menu, expand the Voice Assistant submenu, and then select Settings.
 
You can also press INSERT+ALT+SPACEBAR twice quickly to immediately toggle the wake word on or off. When the wake word is off, you must always press INSERT+ALT+SPACEBAR
first to tell JAWS to begin listening for a command.
 
To learn more and to view a full list of voice commands for specific actions, say "Sharky, help." You can also select Getting Started from the Voice Assistant
menu.
 
Here are a few commands you can try to help you get started. Remember to say "Sharky" or press INSERT+ALT+SPACEBAR before speaking each command.
 
list of 10 items
• Help
• Talk faster
• Talk slower
• Change settings
• Command search
• What time is it
• List links
• List headings
• List spelling errors
• Tell me a joke
list end
 
Improved Microsoft Teams Support
list of 6 items
• If you press ENTER on a document in the Files list which opens the inaccessible document viewer, you can now press ESC to return to the files list. You
are also prompted to use the SHIFT+F10 context menu and open the document in the desktop application, which is the suggested method.
• You can now press ALT+1 through 5 to go directly to the first five tab pages.
• Pressing ALT+LEFT ARROW now automatically activates the back button from anywhere in Teams.
• You can now press ALT+H to hang up a call in progress.
• You can now press ALT+T to set focus to the Teams tree view, if visible. Note that it is usually only visible if CTRL+3 has been pressed to show the
teams and channels list. The screen should also be maximized to ensure this control is visible.
• Pressing ALT+R now raises or lowers your hand in a meeting.
list end
 
Teams also allows you to show meetings and calls in separate windows with fewer controls. To do this, press CTRL+COMMA to open Preferences and select the
check box labeled: "Turn on new meeting experience (New meetings and calls will open in separate windows. Requires restarting Teams.)" While JAWS specific
keystrokes for meetings and calls will not work in this split mode, Microsoft has their own set of keystrokes you can review by pressing CTRL+PERIOD.
 
New Keystroke for Setting Punctuation Level
 
You can now press INSERT+SHIFT+2 on the number row (CAPS LOCK+SHIFT+2 in the Laptop keyboard layout) to cycle through the four punctuation levels which
controls how much punctuation JAWS and Fusion speak while reading. The available levels are None, Some, Most, and All. Similar to toggling Screen Echo
(INSERT+S) or Typing Echo (INSERT+2), the punctuation level will revert back to the previous setting when JAWS or Fusion is restarted. To permanently set
a punctuation level, use the JAWS Startup Wizard or Settings Center.
 
Note: Due to issues with some Dell keyboards when using the Laptop layout, you may need to use the RIGHT SHIFT key to perform this keystroke.
 
Announce Most Recent Windows Notification
 
You can now perform the new layered command INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by N to have JAWS repeat the last notification that was spoken. Notifications include
an incoming Teams or Skype call, a recent Zoom message, a new email in Outlook, and more. If you use a Focus braille display, you can also press RIGHT
SHIFT+N (DOTS 1-3-4-5). To view and manage all your Windows notifications, use the Microsoft keystroke WINDOWS Key+A.
 
FS Support Tool for Gathering System Information
 
The FS Support Tool is a new utility that collects information about your computer and sends a report to our Technical Support and Software Development
teams to help us troubleshoot any issues you may be experiencing while running JAWS, ZoomText, or Fusion. You will typically be asked to run this utility
during a technical support session if it is determined that additional details about your system are needed. Some information that is collected includes:
 

list of 9 items
• System information such as processor, RAM, operating system, architecture, and more
• Event logs
• Version of Adobe Reader (if installed)
• Versions of all installed web browsers
• Information on installed Microsoft Office applications
• Crash dumps
• Installation logs
• Currently running system processes
• User settings
list end
 
The FS Support Tool can be started from the Help menu in JAWS, or the Support menu in ZoomText or Fusion and guides you through collecting and submitting
a report.
 
Announce Accessible Notification Events
 
By default, JAWS now automatically announces Windows generated accessible event notifications in both speech and braille. These types of notifications
are found in a variety of places including business bars in Microsoft Office. If you do not want to hear these announcements, open Settings Center and
clear the Enable Accessible Notification Events check box.
 
Automatic Message Reading in Outlook 365
 
When you open a message from the Inbox in Outlook 365, JAWS and Fusion will now immediately begin reading the message contents without reading the title
or header information. Currently, messages are not automatically read if you ALT+TAB to an open message, or you press ENTER on a message in the Inbox that
is already open.
 
To further customize how messages are read, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V) while in Outlook, search for "message," and configure any of the resulting options.
A few items you might want to change include:
 
list of 3 items
• Message Header Field with Message Announcement: Turn this option on if you want JAWS and Fusion to announce the sender's email address and the subject
of the message when a message opens or gains focus.
• Messages Automatically Read: Turn this option off if you do not want JAWS and Fusion to automatically read messages when they are opened.
• Speak Window Titles For Read-only Messages Automatically: Turn this option on if you want JAWS and Fusion to announce the title of the message window
when a message opens or gains focus.
list end
 
General Changes
list of 8 items
• JAWS now properly reads as expected in Skype when moving focus back to the app withouth the need to first press ALT and ESC.
• Added a new Settings Center and Quick Settings option called "Pan Text by Paragraph" which is off by default. When enabled, JAWS sends an entire paragraph
to the braille display instead of only the current line as you navigate web pages and documents. This can help improve the flow of reading when panning
through text as you are less likely to encounter large amounts of empty space on the display when you reach the end of a line. You should now only encounter
blank space if you reach the end of a paragraph, and you would move to the start of the next paragraph when panning again.
• While in a Zoom meeting, you can now press CTRL+SHIFT+T to find out who is currently talking. Zoom recently added this option with CTRL+2 but we were
previously using it for a JAWS feature.
• The default graphics verbosity for JAWS is now to read only labeled graphics as it is no longer as important for JAWS to read graphics that are not labeled.
If you encounter a situation where you need to read unlabeled graphics, or you do not want to hear graphics at all, open Settings Center and search for
Graphics Verbosity.
• When using certain keyboards or headsets with multimedia controls, you can now press the layered command INSERT+SPACEBAR, followed by the GRAVE ACCENT
key to toggle volume notification announcements. These announcements are off by default.
•  Removed the announcement of Tutor Messages in Microsoft Office Ribbons as they were very verbose when attempting to navigate.
•  Increased the size of the Speech History Buffer to allow for 500 strings rather than just 50 when you press INSERT+SPACE, H to review  the most recent
strings sent to the synthesizer.
•  Updated braille drivers provided by Papenmeire.
list end

Standard advice:

1.  If your computer manufacturer has a support page for drivers and downloads, check to see if there is a keyboard driver for your specific make and model.  Download and install.

if they don't have one or that doesnt' work:

2. Using SFC (System File Checker) and DISM (Deployment Imaging Servicing and Management) to Repair Windows 8 & 10

if that doesn't solve the problem:

3. Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file

Gene, I can't remember whether it was Windows 8 or 10 where the slight name change took place, but what had been known as Windows Explorer all the way up through Windows 7, at least, is now known as File Explorer under Windows 10.

And I'd be shocked if anyone even knew they were using File Explorer versus Windows Explorer.  If the controls aren't 100% identical, they're so close as to be virtually so.

And related to programs in general, particularly wildly complex ones, there are generally several simple keyboard shortcuts any user should learn of the "return me to this part of the program nature."  What those are vary from program to program, but in things like Outlook or Thunderbird it's worth learning, early on, what those are so that if you somehow "get lost in the thicket" you can instantly return yourself to familiar territory.

In most complex pieces of software, much like in Windows itself, there are literally hundreds to thousands of features and keystrokes that you, as an individual, will never likely touch.  You learn the parts you need, when and as you need them, and how to get back to them in the event you accidentally end up somewhere you had not intended.

cleaning brailler paper feed rollers

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi

I am not sure if its due to the high humidity around here for the past few days, but it seems like the paper feed roller on my perkins brailler has some sort of powdery dust-like stuff on it. I keep the cover on it whenever I am not using it. It’s a used brailler recently refurbished by perkins products a month ago. All I have for cleaning around here is lysoll, chlorox wipes and baby wipes and hand sanitizer, damp wash cloth with water, dawn dish soap. That’s about it. I would have to buy cleaning alcohol if necessary to clean the brailler paper feed roller. I don’t think I have to take the brailler apart, don’t have the tools for that anyway… I can just use the knobs and turn the paper feeder to get at the entire feed roller. Anyway, cleaning tips would be helpful and also is the powdery stuff dust, or the rubber coating coming off? Not sure?

I haven't used Outlook but I expect that if you learn how to do what you want, you can ignore the various ways of getting lost for the most part. For example, Thunderbird has a calendar. Using f6 when the program opens skips it and moves you directly to the folders list.

I can't discuss Windows 10, but in Windows 7, in Windows explorer, when you are on a file in the list, you can tab around and see all sorts of items you will seldom if ever use. I ignore them all except for the search field. By ignoring them, I can use Windows Explorer, as it is called in Windows 7, as simply as I did in XP.

I' not saying this is true of all programs, but I suspect many can be simplified significantly by the user knowing how to efficiently get to and use what he/she wants while not getting bogged down in other things.

Hi Alan,
Thank you for your response, but I don't think doing a repair would help, as
Outlook 2010 is just so outdated! Outlook is not only outdated, but it is
sure enough flaky! I never did like Outlook for the simple fact it has to
many whistles and bells, in which I can't stand, and I just don't need all
those bells that go along with it. Now, this is just my personal opinion
though. The thought of calling Microsoft, gives me a headache! I will
definitely look in to another email program though. Having said all that, I
do love Outlook for iOS though, and wish I could have that on my pc, and not
only on my phone, but it is what it is! LOLL!

You could try a repair of your Office software or if you only have Outlook,
a repair of that.
Other option would be call Microsoft disability desk.

Subject: [TechTalk] Outlook 2010 Help Please.

Hi everyone,
For quite some time now, whenever I attempt to forward an email message,
Jaws completely just stops talking, and no matter what keys I might press,
Jaws is completely silent. Several minutes later after I keep pressing some
keys just to see if I can hear something, Jaws starts reading, Microsoft is
not responding if I close the program now or restart the program, I will
lose any unsaved data, then I get the message saying, U.S spelling is not
responding. Does anyone have any suggestions as how to stop this, and just
simply forward an email message?
Using Outlook 2010, Windows 7.
Thank you all in advance.


Janet


Peace Be With You.

When I had pop three, I had a choice whether to delete messages from the server after download or not, and I had to set which one I wanted.  Pam.

Only if you are using IMAP, Exchange, or one of several other lesser known server-side protocols.

By default most POP configurations will delete downloaded messages from the server after they are downloaded, and that means one e-mail client would have certain messages that it downloaded and the other other ones.

If you are using a server-side access protocol, you are 100% correct.

Down arrow key on the laptop not working in some programmes

Akshaya Choudhary
 

Hello guys,

The down arrow key on my laptop is not working in Windows's and several other programmes. It is not a hardware issue, since the key is working perfectly fine in all my browsers. I suspect it might be caused by some Windows update. If you guys are familiar with this issue and have any possible solution, kindly let me know. It would be a great help.

Regards

This has nothing to do with anything being blocked. See the first message, at the bottom of the thread in this message.

David signs up for an e-mail list using his Microsoft Account address. He gets responses in his GMail account. Therefore, his sign up is being redirected to the account he doesn't want to use. The Google account is functioning as far as allowing him access, as it should.

Here you go:
In your Gmail account settings, have you enabled the use of less secure apps? If you were to create a new Gmail account today and tried to set the account
up in the Outlook desktop app for instance, it would be blocked until you allowed the use of less secure apps. As for the exact process, here are the steps
if you are using the basic html setting in the online Gmail interface:

1. Log into your Gmail inbox.
Note: If you use the, Links List keystroke, Insert + F7, to find the links in steps 2,3 and 4 along with first letter navigation it'll make things go
much faster.

2. Press, Insert + F7, to open the links list, press the letter, S, to find the, settings link and press enter.

3. Press, Insert + F7, to open the links list, press the letter, G, to find the, Google account link, and press enter.
Make sure it's the, Google Account link and not Gmail account link.

4. Press, Insert + F7, to open the links list, press the letter, S, to find the, Security link, and press enter.

5. Press, Insert + F7, to open the links list, press the letter, L, to get to the, Less Secure App Access, link.
6. Now down arrow to find an, On link, to toggle on the use of less secure apps, it could also be a checkbox.
Note: I'm not sure if there's a save settings button or not, but it wouldn't hurt to look.

Finished.

You need to use the google web site and log in and unsecure your password.

This is really difficult.kl I found the best way is to have Microsoft accessibility do it for you. It involves many steps in outlook to get it finished

Hi. I'm trying to subscribe to the Viphone discussion group via email, not using the Google Groups Web interface and I'm trying to do this from my primary Outlook.com email address. I open Thunderbird to my Outlook.com address and send the subscription request via email. When I then get added or subscribed I get messages sent to my Gmail account instead of my Outlook.com account. There's clearly a link which has been set up in my Gmail account but I can't seem to locate it in order to unlink my Gmail account from my Outlook account and I'd like to find a way of doing this. What I want is to subscribe to this group using my Outlook.com address and have that same address subscribed to the group.

Other options that generally get rid of these things these days is turning on 2 factor authentication (usually a code sent to your smartphone, but there are other options) or using a FIDO-2/UF2 security key (and these can be had cheaply these days, see this one on Amazon).

Re: Ebay New Visual Test for Login

Rich:

I have not seen the visual choice on eBay, but have gotten a page with secret questions to set up for extra security.

The question page is not accessible to answer the questions easily, so I just closed the page and tried signing in again with my user name and password.

The second time I signed in, I got right in without falling on the extra security page.

Wonder if this would work with your security issue.

Might give it a try.


Re: Ebay New Visual Test for Login

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

By the way, these are not being used only by eBay and/or Google.  I've run into them all over the place recently.  Since I'm generally not running a screen reader, and since these are clearly set up to allow alternate verification by typing what you hear in a brief audio sequence, I'd simply presumed the buttons with the icons that indicate same (a speaker for the audio challenge) would also have labels exposed for a screen reader to read.
